She's trying to kill me!

I swear, she is. (my coach, that is) I just finished my interval hill workout and decided it was a good time to look at my schedules for next week and the week after. Ohmigawd! Drills and techniques and power workouts and the one that really did me in - an hour and a half run with the last three miles at 8:30 pace. Are you kidding me? Did I mention I'm slow? I don't think I can do 8:30 for more than a mile - not a step more than a mile! Holy cow!

I know, wrong attitude. I need to work on that. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. Yikes!

Other than that though, I have to say, I feel pretty darn good about myself today. I ate right yesterday for a change - no extra sugar or fat. I did my work outs as planned. And tomorrow is a rest day. I don't remember the last time I was looking forward to a rest day so much. Oh yeah, and I have a date tonight. Well, sort of a date. I'm meeting this guy for dinner. We've said it's a no pressure thing, just friends. And that's truly what I want at the moment, but it will be nice to get out of the house and eat out for a change. Here's hoping he's the best thing since sliced bread and we hit it off immediately - or he's just a really nice guy who can carry on a conversation and we can truly be friends. Either way - better than some alternatives I can think of. I know, not even close to what you were thinking when you saw this was a blog about running, but it's all about life.

Until next time.... stay warm. Run fast. Be happy.

Enjoy your date! Be sure to tell us about how it goes (look at me being all nosy).

Your plan makes me hurt. My muscles ache just looking at it. But you're in much better shape than me, so you'll be fine, I'm sure.
